Now that the remaining votes have been counted, the numbers show that Proposition 30 has passed. Measure Q looks as though it will pass, but the close numbers mean that uncounted absentee ballots could sway the result. The close congressional race has ended with a win for Democrat Julia Brownley, who had a slight lead over Republican Tony Strickland. Incumbent Barack Obama has cinched the presidency once again, earning 303 electoral votes out of a possible 538.
